The Mescal Ceniza (Agave colorata) is an attractive small plant with individual succulent rosettes 60 to 120 cm in diameter. This plant is usually solitary and does not often send up many plants around the main rosette, but sometimes it may slowly clump and mature plants develop a short stem (larger group can grow up to 1.2-1.8m tall and 2-3 m in diameter). It is similar in size and armament to its bovine cousin (Agave bovicornuta), but the blue-grey leaves are wider, with stunning leaf imprints. Leaf imprints develop during the formation of the bud.
